“We all loved our week at Kalisi and just wished it could have been longer. It’s such a gorgeous quiet spot with so much room upstairs and downstairs, inside and out for guests of all ages to really spread out and relax and enjoy themselves. Patrick and team produced exceptional meals for adults and children alike and coped so well with five hungry youngsters and their post-sailing appetites. We enjoyed beachcombing and exploring along the creek and watching all the passing dhows and fishing boats from the lovely terrace above the ocean – it’s a fabulous spot for sundowners and moonrises too. Thank you for such a happy and memorable holiday.”

“What an amazing stay! Being locked down here was one of the most magical experiences for all of us – swimming and snorkelling in the creek every day, yummy food and this beautiful house! Asante Sana – we hope to come back soon!”

“Just the best stay ever! A fabulous house, amazing team, wonderful views, gorgeous creek and the best hidden coral reef treasure right out in front. A healing, healthy, special and fun time. Thank you all so much.”

JC, Nairobi

“We had such a fantastic time at Kalisi. The house is so beautiful and perfect for a group of friends as it has lots of different spaces to hang out in. We especially loved the top floor balcony. It’s hard to believe we were the first commercial guests because everything ran so smoothly. Everything we needed was catered for, the food was amazing and especially impressive because we had two vegetarians who don’t eat fish and Patrick really put a lot of thought into their meals. We will definitely recommend it to our friends.”
